http://www.womensartcenter.org/categories/call-for-entries/

The Women’s Art Center still has a few available slots for exhibitions in 2009. Please follow the guidelines below if you would like to be considered for a show this year.

Vision

To be a center helping our community in the best way we know how; artistically. To be a place where women and artists are inspired to take the risks to make their creative dreams real.

Mission

• To improve our community through outreach programs, classes, and artistic endeavors.

• To make a space for established artists to take creative risks and push themselves to new places in their artmaking.

• To inspire and launch emerging artists by providing classes, networking opportunities, challenges, resources, and gallery space to support them in their creative work.

Media

All mediums are accepted: drawing, ceramics, painting, photography, printmaking, mixed mediums, space installations, sculpture, textiles, etc.

Proposal Requirements

1) an email stating your name, address, phone numbers, and medium to info@womensartcenter.org

2) five attached digital images of recent work with attached information indicating your name, title of the piece, medium, size, and date.

3) a statement and description of the proposed exhibition (Please consider the philosophy of the gallery as you develop this section.)

4) a brief resume that outlines your education, exhibition history, awards, and any other relevant information.

Deadline: October 31, 2008

Exhibition Selection

A panel review committee will meets regularly to select exhibitions for available slots in the gallery schedule. Quality of work, evidence of ability to produce proposed exhibit, balance of mediums submitted for the season, and completion and clarity of the proposal will all be considered. Notification will be made one month after proposal is received.

Sales

The Women’s Art Center’s commission is 40% on all works that are sold. Artists are encouraged to have a variety of smaller pieces—including flat files, prints, etc— to sell with their larger work. The commissions are used to help cover the costs of gallery programming and running the center. Work does not have to be for sale.

Questions?

Please email info@womenartcenter.org with any questions or concerns as you develop your exhibit proposal. Thank you for your interest in The Women’s Art Center.
